Things Deb Likes:

Fanvids:

Di Wey – Tenth Doctor: The Musical (Contains a bit of language)
Flummery – Handlebars

If you are not averse to downloading versus streaming, I HIGHLY recommend Fan Eunice and Greensilver’s vid Papa Don’t Preach.  Not only is it fun, it is a fantastic example of using source material to tell a completely different story. In this case, the story of Jack telling the Tenth Doctor he is pregnant with the Master’s baby.  Don’t judge, it works.  😉
